Thanks for committing that.

To answer your question, I found that most of the gnome apps link
against libwrap, because of ORBit, but that doesn't mean it would be
useful to make an exception for them (to the warning). My short list
has three more from the base system and one from pkgsrc:

	rpcbind		(for sure!)
	afpd		(netatalk print server)
